Wilson High School Ratings & Reviews

January 12, 2014 Submitted by a student
As an IB student, I can say that this school is far batter than what many people around the Florence area make it seem to be. Once most IB parents see the area of town it is in, and the amount of black students there, stereostypes and assumptions are automatically applied. This school is not dangerous whatsoever. Since the new principle came in, behavior and illegal substance usage has drastically improved. The first year i attended there was a fight every week of the first semester, now i have not seen one fight the whole year. Wilson has the best school prode and most active alumni in the florence area. During homecoming time, wilson is the only school in the area in which the tiger flag is proudly seen all throughout each section of florence, unlike west or south florence high schools. Suprisingly, west florence high school has a higher drug problem than wilson, being as the students there are more wealthy, being able to afford and get away with more and more things. Wilson has been dominant in the florence area academically, with evidence coming from the winnings of our academic challenge team. Think twice before negatively judging WHS

We want this school to succeed. The teachers do their best with limited resources. We also look forward to what the new principal can do for Wilson. A missing component is parent involvement. I never could find out when the APT/PTA met. The whole school can get back to 'Great' with improved leadership, support from the community and an inclusive environment.

Wilson HS has been under the magnifying of the DOE for several years now. The principal has been weak and the lack of control is overt and evident. All this said with the inclusion of the IB program located at the school. Imagine what test scores and ayp scores would show w/o the district wide IB program at their school! Probably the reason why the put it at Wilson--to help bolster the view from being totally incompetent to just incompetent. Not a very safe school either. School resource officers stay busy there and fights break out all the time. Kids curse at the teachers and do whatever they want. The state has threatened to come in and run the school if it does not improve. As a result, there has been a shakeup and a new principal has been brought in to hopefully change course. So sad that the prestigious IB program/curriculum is set up at this school. What a horrific school to have the IB program at. Seems like a no brainer to provide the District Wide IB program their own building or housing so this school can be seen for what it really is--a real mess.

The comment posted on 5/12/09 from a student was indeed his/her obvious opinion. The comment I felt was un apporiatate due to the student s' lack of leadership to be apart of the solution not generally the problem. A comment like the student posted also would seem to add negative conversation to the image of Wilson High School. The building is without a doubt, lifeless until life enters through the doors/windows. I would appreciate comments like this student made to be directed to appropriate staff regarding the school cleaniness. The student had a choice for obvious reason to do something to impact the school. However, most times he/she chooses to do absolutley nothing in attempts to trash the schools' image. SHAME ON YOU FOR DOING NOTHING!!!!. The IB program is without a doubt accademically empowering students. All students have the opportunity to be successful because the sky is the limit. l

Wilson is a good school with great academics, like all schools in the district a new building would be appreciated but over all the administration is good..
